Default Rails developers close another "extremely critical" flaw

From http://h-online.com/-1793511

The Rails developers have released Ruby on Rails 3.0.20 and 2.3.16 which contain one, and only one, "extremely critical security fix". The problem only affects Rails 3.0.x and 2.3.x with Rails 3.1.x and 3.2.x not affected. Users of the 2.3 and 3.0 branches are advised to update as soon as possible, or to apply patches if they cannot upgrade. If they cannot do that either, a workaround of setting

ActiveSupport::JSON.backend = "JSONGem"

in the application's initialisation code will, at least, prevent the vulnerable code from being called.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
